I'm applying for a job and I need two references for the application. I'm not able to get in touch with one of them before it's due. Would it be bad form if I put them down and sent them an email to let them know I've done it, instead of contacting them and asking prior to doing it?

Related question, does it look bad if you say 'no' to 'can we contact your references?'? I don't have anything to hide from this job that I'm applying for, it's more that I don't want my current employer knowing I've applied for this job.

that's why "no" is an option. if it was not they would not have offered.

Wait, you have to tell your references when you put them down?

I always thought you can just put down former bosses or whatever without worrying too much.

You should do, in case the new employer contacts them. Otherwise, it's just rude.

That's what I thought. I would have selected no if it weren't for the fact that I know that my other reference will say good things about me and I want that to work in my favour

Bump. I'd like an answer to that first question please
